Lets discuss bullseye fuckups !in networking. I am blaming myself but if the stuff happens to me it might be you
I was involved in car crash of linux networking.
Molcar [my blog] summed up the experience. Blockages.
Guess how many hours where spent troubleshooting in coments. It started with realtek nonfree firmware not downloading during the upgrade to 11 from debian ten. Despite me watching for oh shit moments the card was there but had no driver. Attempts tofix failed
Another pc involved network manager – it freezed x session and i had to hard reset four or five times a day. So i had to setup interfaces file and bang no more x server crashes.

If you happen to know the networkd team please pass on my lack of psychic powers .
Moving from i386 to 686 ifconfig is thoroughly broken a sign networking and linux have inconsistencies.
This is the fun i had downgrading,
eth0 right – that’s easy, but it changed to emps<number> in debian 11, and remained that way for debian 10 downgrade with a virgin disk.
Ok i can change the card name, and bang two days later it is eth0 once again as it decided that was something that could happen.
So i change it back and it fails to connect to the zoo’s lan on ipv4. I look at the emps settings – no change.
Hmm, this is some weird shit but I remember making some link files in /usr/lib/systemd.network that did not work ever but it then activated for the first time..
abomination crap from Poettering
/usr/lib/systemd/network# cat 10-lanwired.link.sw
#hardware a:b:c:d:etc not an apple fan boy thing [my blog]
Yes i am seemingly to blame even though Poettering‘s [my blog] networkd is fucked up and works strangely.
No i have idea why it changed days later. Networking is simple but when systemd enable files and change name of things and forget to have the firmware in the repo then good luck.
The moral is do not trust systemd and networkd. I have lived through this shit and recommend you do not.
I hope you understand my mistrust of debian 11, further war stories await.
